Broccoli Bonanza

BroccoliPaula from Conneticut wrote in this week asking for multiple ways to cook broccoli, one of my favorite super-charged vitamin-packed veggies! Broccoli has been touted as a superfood, and for good reason. Broccoli is available year round and is a staple in my fridge. I love it because it’s versatile and I know that most of my dinner guests and their kids just love it.

1 Cup of Broccoli Contains:

  • only 30 calories
